McAuliffe says refugee ban will ‘breed hatred’ toward US
The Democrat said during a press conference at Dulles International Airport on Saturday that he has asked Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring to look into "all legal remedies" available to help individuals who may be detained in Virginia.
McAuliffe said he has heard that a family is being held at Dulles, but is trying to confirm that with federal officials.
McAuliffe called Trump's action "discriminatory," saying it will "breed hatred toward Americans around the globe."
Trump also instituted a 90-day ban on travel to the U.S. by citizens of Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen.
